Luxury smartphone accessories vendor Gresso says that it has launched a new mobile phone the Cruiser Titanium which includes a solid phone case that was constructed using equipment from the metal widely used in the aerospace industry.
The company warned that it takes a lot of hard work and accuracy to polish a titanium piece by a single high- qualified craftsman, making these products extremely rare.
Case manufacturing involves 9 stages.
First, the case holds 6-stage polishing process, followed by 3-stage hand polishing with various abrasive pastes creating a glossy blade effect. The most exclusive features of the collection are front and back panels executed from solid tempered glass plates. Unique tinting technology is used to create a deep black color.
The phone keyboard is traditionally cut from steel. Each key button is polished by hand which adds some mysterious smoky gloss, as well as a special significance to the phone exterior.
It takes about 52 hours of handwork to create one handset.
The Cruiser Titanium phone is a limited edition of 555 pieces, at the retail price of US$2,100.
